The file that is supposed to have all the sample files for all the chapters has only one file and there is no such thing as a .fm13 file as stated on the downloads page: Download all of these files: FileMakerPro13MM_missingCD.zip (all .zip files referenced below contain the .fp13 file)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Confirmed two issues: The download page refers to ".fp13" files. The proper file extension is ".fmp12." The download that should be a zip file of all the book's files is just a single file (the one for Ch01).

the link to the download for work files downloads an older version (or so it appears from the title): Page: http://www.oreilly.com/pub/missingmanuals/fmp13mm LInk Text: FileMakerPro13MM_missingCD.zip Link address: http://examples.oreilly.com/0636920022817/FileMakerPro12MM_missingCD.zip downloads the following file: FileMakerPro12MM_missingCD

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thanks for noticing this. I've forwarded it so that the IT folks can fix the link. In the meantime, the older files should work for most of the early tutorials.

The Files links for the Chapters don't work for Chapters 9 and 10. Also, the link to download ALL the files is the same as the link for Chapter 1.

At Location 614 of 22974 the note box at the top says: field called "Modified changes" appears when you Should read: field called "Modified" changes when you

Note from the Author or Editor:
The second note on page 13 should read: If you try this on the sample People file provided on the Missing CD page, then you’ll notice that a field called “Modified" changes when you click out of the record. You’ll learn what that field is used for later.
